Vintage "Eagle" Cowboy Boots

Bodacious Boots

A great pair of Saturday nite specials. Cowboy boots made by Don Quijote in 1978. Cristobal Romero managed the shop in Leon Mexico back then. He had a excellent eye for balance and proportion. He also set very high standards. No cardboard. No plastic. No nails. The boot makers who worked with him produced many pairs of fine quality Cowboy boots in those days.

This pair came from El Vaquero on the corner of 4th and Main Street in Tijuana. Their business card reads

Fight Smog
Buy A Horse

Good advice then. Better advice now...

  1. I have a pair of Don Quijote that look like the 70s or 80s. They are my favorite boot. Plain boots. Nobody looks at them twice, but I wouldn't take for them.
